We started by casting up and down the ridge line working every inch on both sides for 3 hours. We had a few possible missed hits or snags. It’s hard to tell with how rocky it is out there. We did manage to land a few rocks and some were sworn walleye all the way to the boat before the disappointing volcanic surfaced. The rocks had as much fight as most walleye, so the misjudgments were valid.
Evening arrived and we began to see the walleye rolling on the surface doing there mating dance. We spent some time chasing these surface fish, casting right on top of them, but they just kept doing their thing without a care in the world. A couple of them looked to be very large females with massive bellies full of eggs. I wish these fish would bite once in awhile.
It was a beautiful night with a killer sunset, but as usual the walleye fishing was poor to skunky.
I leave you with a video of the only thing we caught today…
